A little update…

Oh dear, where did the time go? It’s been a while since I checked in here. But life has been a little bit of a roller-coaster lately and so much has happened. I got a new job. Summer is here. It’s almost Christmas. The year is almost over. But I’m excited. I feel like life is getting better. Like I’m moving forward.

I feel excited. For a new year. For what life has in front of me. It’s a nice feeling. The feeling of going in the right direction.

Today I’m having a day off. I have been to the gym. Picked up the weeks groceries (and they even added chocolate for my pick-up order, it made me so happy. It’s like they know me from what I usually order and gave me the healthier option) and now I’m laying in the couch going through stuff for work. Yesterday we put up the few Christmas decorations we have. I said “if we don’t even try to celebrate Christmas here, we will never get used to it”. It’s weird to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer, but we just need to change our mindset.

Wednesday morning

Good morning!
I am trying to get into the habit again of going to bed early, waking up early but my mind is all over the place before I finally fall asleep and when the alarm goes off at 6:30 I feel tired and like I had a restless sleep. It is always like this before we apply and get the visa granted and I know that there is no reason for it to not get approved, but it is hard to deal with the feeling of that this is not my real home. That it is someone else deciding if we can stay or not. And of course that is creating a lot of stress, subconsciously or not.

Now I am just having my second coffee (9:23am) for today and waiting for the time to hit 10.00 so I can go down to the gym. Then shower, get ready, have lunch and go to work 🙂
